no comments

Funding will support smaller-scale evaluation activity with awards lasting up to 12 months ranging between £100k-£250k at full economic cost.

The aim is to:

  • generate causal evidence on what works to spread opportunities and reduce spatial disparities in outcomes for people and places across the UK under one or more of the thematic areas of: (a) sustainable economic growth and innovation, (b) health inequalities, and (c) community connectedness.
  • accelerate the development of innovative and ethical methods for robustly testing and evaluating the impact of interventions related to the thematic areas above
  • build the capacity of the research and innovation system to forge interdisciplinary collaborations and lasting partnerships with local communities (including those with lived experience) in designing and delivering robust research trials and related evaluation activity
  • provide actionable evidence that responds to the needs of decision makers and informs policy or practice at a local, regional, national or international scale
